How many times have you spotted Ian make a reference to something else Sonic related in the comic?
Would you buy an Eggman sponsored ice cream /sthg/?
Alright, I know it's taken awhile (far longer than I intended), but here is a link to the Nicole Archive.
Password is: /sthg/
According to the properties, it has 663 files and 35 folders.
The new pics I've added are in a separate folder, as promised. So, if you do not like the pics I've added, the original Nicole archive is in there completely untouched.
Thank you for being patient.
>expecting bad things from lel rescue face man.
>mfw Sonic Boom could of been an fucking awesome game if it's made by
Just take a straight shot of adrenaline and ecstasy into your biggest visible vein on your arm.
The experience is a bit less than what you get from their games. But it's the closest you'll get.
Just an update to guys who are waiting the Tails archiveI've gone trough the Deviantart and I'm currently browsing Inkbunny and after that I will go to Furaffinity
Is there other sites I could get images to the archive
Whew never tought that finding, downloading, renaming pictures would be this exhausting
>You will never make love to Twam while Bunnie takes you from behind
>non-metal pelvis for Bunnie
Can only give it a 7/10 for lack of clang
I'd still enjoy Bunnie fucking me though as long as that Southern accent was being huskily whispered into my ear the whole time
This whole comic is a reaction image goldmine
I'd keep Mephiles asking Silver to go back to the past, but I'd have Silver think about it for a bit or maybe Blaze try to convince him not to. Or I'd just axe time travel completely
The story's mostly fine. Add some dialogue that'd hint they're trapped in a time loop and that's why there's so much apparent time nonsense. Add some explanation from Mephiles that he needed Iblis in an advanced yet pure state, and that ti was sealed in the tears of Elise, or something.
And then focus more on the dialogue and character scenes. The story wants to be fairy-tale-ish, so the focus has to be on that. Add some whimsy.
>tfw your waifu is purely part of the Western canon and will never show up in official materials
Feels bad man
so does this make eclipse ryuko now
>Boom is primarily Western
>Boom is making the characters Sonic Team don't/barely use relevant again.
>Boom getting its own Archie comic (Are they Western?)
If Boom continues as a side series where it is able to add more characters then maybe, just maybe...
>Nicole replaces Omochao for the purposes of Boom and furthermore fills the roll of Bottles from Banjo in teaching you new moves and abilities when you can find her terminals
This will never happen
I'm here for you Anon
I was looking for a picture of Nicole and Bunnie hugging but the only pic I have with both of them is lewdso this will have to do.
I never said I considered them the same characters. I know fully well that they're completely different. I was just talking about how they're in the foreground along side Sonic.
Maybe I phased this wrong. What I mean is that usually when an old character appears in recent games they are usually just "there" and don't do that much in terms of story or gameplay, like they didn't necessarily have to be included. For example Amy in Unleashed, most of the characters in Colors DS, Knuckles and Amy in Lost World. They are still there but they're only "there", where as in the Classics, Adventure, Heroes, and now Boom all or most of the main characters are in the foreground and have some impact on the game story-wise or gameplay-wise, making their inclusion have more pupose.
Thanks much Anon, we appreciate the work
Very true, just saying there's definitely a higher standard there since the general spaghetti levels of 2ch et al means they're only going to put out stuff that has actual effort put in. Obviously there's always exceptions, but it's still a definite trend.
Are you always the guy who goes to sleep at this hour? Are you in an extreme timezone or is it just your sleep schedule that is?
In any case, have a nice sleep and dream of dem yellowy fluff, Anon.
>we appreciate the work
>Are you in an extreme timezone
If you mean northern europe
Finlandthen yes I am that anon it's http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/finland/tampereo'clock here
And yes my eyes are turning to yellow after watching so many Tails'
The "audience" wasn't even Sonic fans. It was nostalgiafags who weren't going to play the new games or hate them anyway since it wasn't a carbon copy of the Genesis titles
don't get me wrong, I love them and S3&K is my favorite game, but jesus...anyway and reviewers and people who never cared about Sonic in the first place.
People who actually care don't want just Sonic and Eggman. We want playstyles that are like Sonic, but have their own little spin on it.
>We want playstyles that are like Sonic, but have their own little spin on it.
That's the main thing I want Boom to do for the main series. Obviously not using Boom's playstyle, but do that with what ever playstyle they do end up using.
>it was hard to recognize this as a Sonic game at all. Or it would have been, if not for the iconic and well-known heroes.
But Boom's cast looks and acts nothing like Sonic and friends
A lot of people demand Sonic and Eggman do this because we haven't received playstyles that are very similar to Sonic and are good; specifically taking about the 3D console games since that's where most of the complaints come from. And the characters that are similar to Sonic end up being straight up clones(ex SA2 Shadow, Sonic Heroes Speed types,)
Sonic Team never really bothered on making Sonic's friends really fun to play as on the post-Genesis console game for a lot of people, so they question what it the point of them.
Absolutely zero - the games will be completely ignored amidst the flood of things like Smash, Bayo 2, Pokemon ORAS, Hyrule Warriors, Persona Q, and whatever else is coming out in the holiday months, and the cartoon will probably be completely unnoticed.
And they'll be like Donte or LoS or P3 fans, who will think anything that came before is terrible and only liked by faggots and that Boom was a reboot that finally made the series good.
>The only problem was, the targeting system in Sonic Boom was atrocious, and I often found myself flinging missiles at the smaller robots instead of the bigger threat, despite the fact that when I let the missile loose, a targeting reticle was hovering over Eggman and not the minions I wound up attacking.
Strange. Based on the speedrun footage from PAX it doesn't seem to be that bad.
>Better than anything
Seriously, you're acting like he won or something. There are more better things to be rectum ravaged about than some popularity contest. Like all the games that'll never see the light of day over here
Not that I really care since I import anyway, but still.
It's a slightly weird place to start since it's big on nostalgia of the previous games, but if you have fun with it, then who cares?
I don't know if there's a true recommended list, since the Sonic fandom is very diverse in it's opinions.
Don't start with Gens, instead, start with 1, 2, and 3&K. Then go to SA1 to get Modern Sonic's roots, got to SA2 to understand all the hype, then play the Advance series and Rush. Then play Heroes, because that leads into Shadow. Then play 06, as you need to see how bad it truly is. Finally, just play everything from Unleashed onwards
You'll appreciate Generations more if you play a few of the games first since it's pretty much a giant nostalgia bomb, but if you wanna just enjoy it as a game that's fine too.
You'll definitely wanna play the Genesis games so 1-3&K. After that it gets complicated as the fanbase all likes different things. I'd say try both Adventure games and see if you like them. Heroes is hit or miss and Colors is pretty good.
Sonic is always changing. He has no idea which playstyle he'll like so It's best for him to try them all and see what sticks with him. Or he could try Boom to ease into it slowly.
>implying the fucking WiiU game is the only thing out of this whole enchilada
Have you forgot the 3DS game? The comic? The show? The hordes of merchandise?
This is bigger than anything you listed for the holidays sans Pokemon and maybe Smash
which might contribute to Boom sales due to Sonic being in it. Don't even try baiting like that.
Well there is going to be a shop where you can get upgrades, and we don't know who's running it yet. Also since the tutorials are shown on screen according to context this time there's no need for Omochao.
Why would any of the archie characters ever show up in a sonic game. The 5 page Boom comic that comes with the 3DS version will be the closest thing, other than that, Never. Ever.
The most I can think of is some kind of reference only the comic readers would catch. Actually putting the character in the game could only realistically happen if the Boom became a side series, the comic continued with it, and the comic brought in the Archie characters, which could then be put into the games since the Boom comic actually ties into Shattered Crystal, meaning anything in the comics would be fair game anywhere else in the Boom series.
Also the 5 pages of the Boom Comic are only a preview. The full comic will be 30 pages.
>A paltry 90 images
Keep in mind that a good portion of the images just flat out refused to be uploaded, so I have at least 30 more pics. Thanks for the help though
Like I said from the beginning, the show will go completely unnoticed, and I fail to see how the merchandise will sell if the others don't. The only hope it has is the comic, which is fittingly the only part of the sub series that might not be complete shit.
>not selling well
If this is bait, then you nearly hooked me. Because you're trying way too hard now.
>Bunnie the Hairdresser
Oh you motherfuckers
wonder what hes doing in the new continuity
also, have a colour
I liked Emil. He was fucking unbearable at first but that's what character development is for. Like Antoine.
How weird if Antoine had a pissed-off god-spirit sharing his body...
Well, I just got here so I'm gonna answer anyway even though I'm a few hours late.
The first game I played as an adult was Generations, and while I obviously didn't get into the nostalgia I did have a ton of
fun. Problem is that afterwards everything else I played of the modern stuff wasn't very fun, but it worked perfectly to get me very interested and on the lookout for more. It wasn't very nice at all to find out that pretty much everything else was released for consoles.
Talking point: how would you feel if Tails had been the main character and Sonic had been the sidekick?
Year of the Fox?
If the gameplay stated out the same I guess it wouldn't feel that different, but as the games go on it would feel like Sonic would be holding Tails back since Sonic has less to offer as a sidekick than Tails does.
This is a thing.
I feel like I'm in the minority that does not like the current writers for the games. They haven't played a single Sonic game and it shows. They're too busy focusing on jokes and making everyone painfully inept or one dimensional to write a fucking story
>Alex: “There are some hype about Sonic Adventure 3 right now, so I was wondering if you’d be interested to, for example, writing something that would be more like Sonic Adventure 1 and 2 with a bigger and more serious story.”
>Pontac: “Um, well I’d love to write bigger stories, but I don’t…I’m not familiar with the Sonic Adventures that you’re talking about.”
>Alex: “Oh, you’re not?”
>Pontac: “No, like I said, I do [remember reading on the Sonic [websites] and Sonic forums] but it was very upbeat. It gives us his character of course, and, ya know, I sort of knew what he was about but I know nothing about his history or anything so I kinda went to Wikipedia and I watched some cutscenes from various games on Youtube. But um, yeah, I don’t really know the chronology.”
I could go on about how they fucked up Generations royally by not taking advantage of the setting, or how they fucked up Sonic by just making him your typical snarky protag instead of a hedgehog with attitude, or how they fucked up Lost World on every conceivable level in terms of writing, but I'm not sure I have time for it, and besides, it's not gonna change any time soon
>Oh my god it's as terrible as we thought
>It sucks so bad
>Shut up, it isn't that bad. You just want to hate it.
>No, you have shit taste.
>Everybody, shut up about Boom. You're annoying.
>So, who's looking forward to the 2015 game?
>Nicole is mai waifu.
>>not having a husbando
>I can't believe Ian killed all the Egg Bosses
>Appeal more to older and retro fans
>TONING DOWN THE HUMOR
Well that just made my night
>The show will go completely unnoticed.
Sonic X is still going on reruns as far as I know, or ended recently.
Sonic Underground, the least popular Sonic show ever, was shown for years despite being absolute filth.
This show will last far longer than we would ever wish for it to.
Oh, were you that anon from earlier that wanted to start the games? If so, good luck on your ventures. And pic related is a guide for the second big aspect of this franchise
And to be completely honest, I'd probably be a lot more knowledgeable if it wasn't for this project I was doing. That and college is taking up nearly all my time. it's Sonic related, if it counts.
From someone I met a while back on a /b/ thread. I asked him if he still visited 4chan and one of the places he still goes on was this general thread. I was wondering what happened to the Sonic threads on /co/.. guess they moved here. How did you?
The general always seems to be dead at the beginning of the weekend. Then classes started up again recently so that killed activity during the week as well.
Oh welcome then guys. Feel free to ask questions if you're confused about something. People are
usuallypretty nice about explaining things.
I've seen some pretty decent ones, and I've seen shit that would make men scream. But yet it's somehow more tolerable than Smash Bros fanfiction. The less said about that the better
>reveals he's working on a Sonic project
>doesn't tell anything else
Spill the beans Anon!
There were recurring threads on /v/ for a while and then somebody created the general and linked it there.
Interesting that you actually met/contacted somebody on /b/.
I don't know, I always associate weekends with frenetically
fast, even friday nights.
He gave me his fan fiction account in the thread and I was recently going through some old stuff.. found him and decided to say hi. 4chan was a subject. You can "meet" people, it's just how willing you are to give some way to keep in touch.
The project is, in a nutshell, to give Tails a better ending. Something he'd be happy with. To explain how it was inspired I'd need to basically give you my life story and I'm sure there are far better subjects to talk about. Let's just say that I could really sympathize with Tails when it came to Fiona.. I really took those early comic issues personally. I wrote something on the spot. That was 2 years ago. Today, I'm working on the soundtrack to the 3rd chapter and I hope to finish it all by Christmas.
If you want to give Tails a better ending you should pair him with pic related.
She was literally the perfect match.
I used to read it all the time back then but that stopped eventually. I just end up rereading ones that I really liked because I can't find any new ones that I can get past the first chapter with. I don't know if that's because there are less good writers or my tastes just got less shit.
Funny, the issue where that robot came in was what made me start this whole thing in the first place.
A fanfic with a soundtrack/audiobook to go with it. I'm not going to just read it blandly and shove Linkin Park every so often. This'll have music. Dubstep, R&B. I'll mix in FX and try to hide my terrible acting to put together something decent. And hopefully it'll be the first of its kind. It's going to have a lot of things.. looking forward to recording the end theme. Best song I've ever produced. But I'm also afraid of things like the fan films making something like this insignificant. I want the world to see it, but will anyone pay attention?
Thank you, anon. It's possible. I know how to do it and I have the resources to pull it off. I just need to manage my time better. I keep getting distracted.
Indeed.. I think I dream too much, but I'm hoping this project will be the start to what I want to do in life, make music. Change lives with the money I'd get. Make a difference. Realistically, I know being famous and all that's rare.. but it sure can't hurt to shoot for the stars, can it? And don't worry about her. She's
long gone because of a mistake I made 4 years ago coming back to haunt me.
Any issue where Sonic has feels, I have feels. Or those occasions where Shadow has a sensitive moment.
Reminds me of that one issue where she supposedly married Sonic. Remember that one? Then it turned out that it wasn't real or something?
Who did she end up marrying for real, though?
Do you know why? I want to guess it's because you can relate to them on some level. There's always that one thing you can identify with them or see in them you can see in yourself. So it's more impactful when something happens to them because it could happen to you, too.
Twan's death, Thicker than Water, and the final Chaotix arc made me feel many things, mostly sad, but in TtW's case, I felt heartwarmed. As for Anger, I'm gonna nominate all of King Naugus
Well, I don't share much in common with Sonic, to be honest. He's outgoing, sly, and quick with a comeback. I'm introverted and tend to shy away from confrontation or interaction outside of my small circle, and I'm pretty easily aggravated.
>tfw I just realized I have a lot more in common with Shadow than I do with Sonic
This is my confession for the evening- I'm very protective about Sonic, in kind of a big brother-little brother kind of way. I don't lash out if someone's critical about the franchise so much, but the character. I'm very laid back for the most part, but for some reason I'm just very protective about Sonic (and to a lesser extent the friends)
Not him, but same thing, and pretty much for the reasons you mentioned. I get really frustrated about not being able to figure out something or fix things so I guess I relate on that level.
I feel the same way about Tails, man.. he's like a role model to me. I don't mind if people hate him, we're different and that's fine. But I don't like it when people start saying things like he's useless, he was never worth much, etc. Because he is important. He's a brother and ideally would be treated as such. But then again, it's an imperfect world.
What's the story on Naugus? I haven't read the comics in a while.
>tfw despite trying to genuinely enjoy newer Sonic games just can't get into them for whatever reason
>tfw still really like the character and the series and still hold out hope a future game will click with me
I'd be happy with just an expansion pack of stages for S3&K at this point
>What's the story on Naugus? I haven't read the comics in a while.
Well you should know about the vast cosmic retcon that occurred due to legal problems that has removed... a fuckton of the world and its characters. Naugus is one of many gone, but before he was removed he had the most retarded arc ever where he usurped the throne of the Acorn Kingdom and... it was all very stupid, really.
I know about the lawsuit, but I didn't know how many characters were affected by it.
Which brings something to mind.. if the writers and lawyers really tried who do you think could come back?
Naugus is safe because he's from the SatAM cartoon, same as Sally Bunnie Ant Rotor Nicole Dulcy Lupe and Snively (albeit that without being Robotnik's nephew due to Sega's desire to keep canon characters from having relationships that contradict the canon)
Sonic's pretty awesome, too. I remember in elementary I used to act like him all the time and I think that's probably why I can talk kind of cartoony now. At lunch a couple of my friends and I would get together and play as Sonic characters. It was funny, 'cause they related to their character in a sort of way. The friend who'd later turn out to be all dark and stuff played as Shadow and the one who's just happy with the one thing he loved was Knuckles. And I find it kind of silly, this coming from a Tails fan because a lot of them take offense at Tails being a called girl. We had a lady friend play Tails a couple of times.
Was he always your favorite?
I'm trying to play & the Black Knight right now but I kind of hate the controls and physics. I fuckin loved Secret Rings, but this game just feels very shitty, even though there are same cool moments.
Yeah, I'd say so. I'd say I'm a mix between Sonic and Shadow in terms of personality, it'd be too far to say I'm solidly like one or the other.
I always liked Sonic when I was a kid, though I'd usually wind up playing Tails when I'd play Sonic 2 with my older brother.
The problem really is the delay on the wagglan. Not much can be done about it unfortunately. The physics...idk you just gotta get used to it or resign yourself to hating it.
I really like medieval settings, so I toughed it out and stuck around for the ride and wasn't disappointed as far as the setting and atmosphere was concerned, but if you really don't enjoy it you shouldn't force yourself to play.
Unfortunately, I never found the code myself. It looks like a lot of fun, though.
I'm just baffled by you. I absolutely hated Secret Rings' controls, and thought Black Knight at least halfway improved them with using the joystick for movement and not making you charge your jump.
First enter the level select code (Mentioned above).Now,go to sound test option,and play the following tunes-1,9,9,2,1,1,2,4-It should make a ring sound when track 4 is played to signify you've entered it correctly,now select the stage you want to go to,and press start while holding A until the stage starts,and you'll have debug activated.Here are the controls----
B-Turn Debug on/off
C-Put down object selected
Pressing A while the game is paused will cause the game to reset.
Is this enough
Just woke up already the feels
*hugs tightly* I'm here for you, anon. I just want to make Tails happy, is all... he didn't deserve anything he got and I just want to fix it ;_;
So anybody up to some metal
*hugs tighly back* well I wish luck for the story and you making it Just woke up so I'm going to do my morning routines and then get back on making Tails archive
>tfw 2 hours till 6 AM
Shit, I was supposed to go to sleep hours ago, what happened ;_;
Anyway, I'm going now, see ya tomorrow /sthg/.
>So what's in these archives you do, if I may ask?
Tails pics, many Tails pics
Would you say you
have a tale to tell?
In SR, if you can get speed by waiting/boosting (which can be customized), you can take full control of where sonic steps from left to right. In BL, you have to use the joystick to move forward and to move left/right.....and it's not comfortable like in Sonic Heroes, etc. either.
When jumping, it's really difficult to make yourself land properly without that Wiimote control.
I just want to beat the game and maybe get a few decent ranks, since replaying missions is quite simple and the terrible (for me) controls can be gotten used to after a little while.
Those sword duels are okay except for the sword clashes. I heard how to win in them but they still are unreasonably hard.
Well I'm done with this thing, so here you go
Now if I'm not completely wrong it should have 412 pics
You're a good man, Anon.
Well now that I got that Tails archive done i'm off to play some S3&K
stay flying /sthg/
I don't think it would be "filled," it's not like they would flood out every other topic or anything, especially since most of their actual RP would be done in private chat. There's probably very few people here actually interested in doing it, so I doubt it'll have a big impact.
>>- No Metal Sonic. Shades of Blue/One White skin
What the fuck Sakurai.
Had they changed up the story and gameplay, it could have worked. Skypatrol was all right and Adventure was pretty cool.
Personally though, I'm still hoping he gets some kind of Mech Fighter game.
>I've seen you mention that Sonic has been pretty changed up. How's his Neutral B? Is there a faster start up time? And how long does it take to recover from his Down aerial?
>His homing attack is now reminiscent of Project M speed. His side B is amazing, it snaps to the ground and it ends with a kick (also like Project m..lol). The kick is a little different from the project M one though. His down aerial didn't seem too different from Brawl but his bair kick definitely had some extra landing lag. If you down air from high enough you get no landing lag though.
"Yes. His up aerial has a better hitbox, it's wide. His up-smash has KO potential. His side-b ends with a kick. His spin dash is really fast. his side-b clamps to the ground, and zooms at your opponent. It really gives the feel like being a speedy little hard to hit sucker.
Unfortunately is bair has a bit more lag if you land during the kick, but his fair seems to have a really easy auto-cancel (or tech?) window."
They would have needed to introduce a new running/walking animation for those, so I think it would have been too much work.
Watching Metal or Shadow just run would be kind of weird.
>A fighter with access to a healing move
that's some shonky business
Good. Dunno why i didn't think it'd have a wind up
Only if your enemy is super slow and dumb if it has a wind up. I'm gonna go to the smash general for this shit
>realize I lost the hedgehog orgy because of going to sleep early
Making a Shadow archive, currently at just shy of 130 pics.
Taking a break now but just thought I'd let you guys know that one is on the way.
After this one will likely try and make one for best lover on mobius.
No anon, this is maybe my second time posting. I was not aware of another doing it though.
>mfw americans think we are like Antoine
Good morning, world. It's the soundtrack/fanfic guy from yesterday. Just had breakfast, working on the soundtrack and looking forward to today. Loving the Tails stuff ^^
Nope. I'm still here. I kinda just...lost interest since it seemed like one person really cared and I'm too lazy to organize the 500+ pics I have. More power to the anon taking up the helm though.
